The wife is pissed since she didn't want me to get the motorcycle in the first place, so I may be putting my bike up for sale soon depending on if I can fend her off or not. Luckily the bike is still great minus some scratched plastic on one fender. If anyone is interested, please let me know... 300 miles on her and tons of mods (i have a bad habit of modding).

I'm trying to understand all this....just not the most mechanically minded person when it comes to stuff like this!
From my car background this is what I understand... you do not want to plug a crankcase breather due to the chance of blow by pressure building up in the system (which can happen from rings not sealing perfectly, valve seals, etc.). I ran a small K&N like crankcase filter that people usually put on hot rods, it fits right on top of the valve cover. I got a knock off from autozone for $9.

Bought and installed this http://shopusa.emperorracing.com/p/r...-5?pp=24&pp=24

Very light, yet rock solid. Easy to install, looks sharp, decent price, and Im willing to be its going to do its job when I accidentally get off the bike.

Sorry to say, but it's not crankcase vent here ... It is



The purpose being here to avoid fresh air in exhaust line, witch alllow backfires to occur, you'd better corck it completely if i'm not wrong

Have you removed yours? It doesn't go anywhere near the exhaust, and definitely is not plumbed in it. If it was, I would have a huge exhaust leak as I removed the entire system... It is routed into the airbox.

EDIT: Actually, you may be correct, looking at the parts catalog it's called air injection system... the routing is probably inside the valve cover to the exhaust port... BUT I would think I would have a nasty exhaust leak if so, and I simply don't... Oh well, easy fix... PLUG IT.

THAT is by far the best tire change video I've seen! A very slick method to deal with the rim lock, and no struggles with the tire stem!

Thank you, Ed. I ride a lot of miles, and I flip my front tires every 2,000 miles to avoid cupping. Therefore, I change a lot of tires. I use the tire changing methods illustrated in the videos I posted, and they work exactly as demonstrated.

I no longer dread changing tires; I actually enjoy doing it. I don't cut myself. I don't hurt my hands or knees. I don't even get frustrated. Changing tires is very simple when one employs the proper techniques and the proper tools.

Thanks Spud,
Think I'm going to invest a few dollars in a stand and start changing them myself. Tired of paying someone to do what I can do myself.

A question for those of you who have purchased the Dobeck/EJK Fuel Controller sold by BestDualSportBikes.com ..... 13Moose-man, I'm looking at you.

Can you share the settings that the unit has on it's arrival? Are they different than the settings on the unit when purchased from EJK? For comparison the settings on the unit when purchased from EJK are: 3 3 6 5 4 4.5

can't remember where i saw it (maybe RamZ) but 3 / 2.5 / 5 / 4.5 / 4 / 4.5 was the cal settings

Has there been any discussion regarding stalling recently? It would seem one of these numbers deals with idle and off idle fuel (based on a quick glance explaining which number is applicable to which carburetor mode "analogy"). Or is it still being attributed to alcohol in the fuel?

Just went to RamZ's site...he says: "I spent some time reading up on the EJK. There are six numbers you can change that determine where in the power band and to what extent jetting changes are made. These are well-explained in the paperwork that comes with the EJK and on their web site. The numbers that are preset in the EJK are 3 3 6 5 4 4.5 which I verified before the first ride."

You're welcome. You won't be sorry you decided to change your own tires. In addition to the convenience and cost savings, you will also increase your safety by changing your own tires. Every time I change a tire, I also inspect the following items. You can't trust a shop to take the time to do the following.

1) Inspect brake rotor or brake drum
2) Inspect inner tube
3) Inspect rim strip
4) Inspect rim of wheel
5) Inspect spoke nipples
6) Inspect, and tighten spokes
7) Inspect wheel hub
8) Inspect wheel bearings
9) Inspect sprocket

If I discover anything wrong with the wheel, I fix it immediately, before I re-install the wheel. You only have two wheels, and you can't afford to have problems with either. In addition, if you are riding in the wilderness, you need to know how to repair a flat tire by the side of the trail.

The tire changing stand you referred to is excellent. I also enjoy my tire changing stand, which you can buy for $85, delivered.

http://www.rockymountainatvmc.com/p/...changing+stand



Similar deals are also available on eBay, and a variety of online vendors. A tire changing stand makes the job much easier, and is an excellent investment. Unless I am trailside, I will never again change a tire on my hands and knees.
